Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Fruit ID - possible Australian native

Definitly not Malay Apple, as the fruits are large, atleast 40 to 60 mm.

Definitely not Junglesop, as it has all the leaves growing on one side of the stem, until the plant begins to branch.

What sort of Ph does Pitomba need? And what fertiliser does one use?

My tree is about 4 years old. It is about 5 feet tall but not very lush.

These are the first fruits on my Pitomba plant. Thanks to 'achetadomestica' for selling me the seeds. I find the fruits very nice and sweet when they are harvested when they are Orange in color. I am very happy for having got a nice fruit! I had tasted some Pitomba at Fairchild Botanical Gardens and had found the fruits to be mediocre. But the ones I tasted in 'Kampong', Fairchild's old home, were large and excellent.

No, it is not Bael. Bael has Orange like seeds.

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Ice cream bean

How to know when the bean is ready to be plucked? Are there any external indicators? Thanks in advance.

I dug up these Dioscorea esculenta tubers today. Tubers from this vine is what Caesar has.

This bulbifera tuber I had dug up yesterday and it weighed 4.756 kgs or  about 10.5 lbs. After boiling, it was soft but not mushy and slightly sweet! Much better than the arial tuber.

At last the remaining fruit has softened. It is sweeter than Rollinia with a nice flavour, but very little to eat.

Did the beetle have a 'horn' like a Rhinoceres?

That is fantastic. How long has the mother root been in the ground?

I got the same bulbifera from Caesar and they have grown very well. I moved mine this past year and it slowed down the production. I hope to have some larger like yours some day.
The mother root has been in the ground two years. Every three years I dig up the mother root to boil and eat, as it is tastier than the arial tuber. I plant a new one in its place.

About 3 months back I found this Yam growing on a tree in my farm. It looks as if I had planted the tuber two or three years back and had not noticed the vine.

The vine is different in that, it has 6 ridges and not 4 as compared to other Dioscoreas I have, and there are small thorns in the ridges.
Last week when I checked on the vine it had dried up and the seed tubers were falling down. So yesterday I decided to dig up the tuber. Initially the tuber appeared the thickness of a thumb but as I went deeper it became thicker, but it is so tender that the slightest pressure on the soil would break the tuber, as you will see from the no. of pieces! Finally after a depth of about two and a half feet, the tuber had grown into the root of the tree and I had to abandon my attempt.

After boiling the tuber, when I tasted it I got a surprise! It is the tastiest Yam I have eaten! It is very creamy and unbelievably 'White' !!
